Step 1: Paper Mache Clay/glue

You will need paper mache clay. I used this for both sculpting and gluing and just added more water to the mix for glue and more flour and wallpaperglue for the clay.

ingredients:

wallpaper glue

newspaper

water

flour

Start by tearing up newspaper into small strips and put them in hotwater overnight. When the papermix is nice and gooey take a handfull out and squeeze out some water. Add the appropriate amount of wallpaperglue and flour depending on if it is glue or clay.

Step 2: Balloon + Paper Mache

Blow up balloon big enough to fit your head. Cover it in paper mache and let it dry.

Step 3: Make the Teeth, Eyes and Nose

Use the paper mache clay to make the teeth. I also did the nose and eyes now instead of sculpting them to save time drying.

Step 4: Making the Hair and the Sculpt

I made the hair out of halloween spiderweb and silver tape, but i recommend a wig.

Apply the nose and eyes and start sculpting details with paper mache clay.

When you have made the lips and gum put in the teeth and finish by gluing on the hair and the let everything dry.

Step 5: Painting

Use acrylic paint.

white, black, green, red

Put on a basecoat of white and let it dry before doing the final paintjob.
